Framptons offer the perfect Six Nations viewing experience
If you’ve yet to find the perfect venue in which to watch this year’s Six Nations tournament, might we suggest that you free kick your way to Framptons (The Empire, Grand Parade) which is proud to be fully match fit to ensure the perfect rugby viewing experience, offering broad appeal and a warm welcome to all.
All Six Nations matches will be shown on two large screens (one in the bar and the other in the restaurant area,) making sure that nobody misses out on a single lineout, breakdown or ruck. “We’re a mere drop kick away from Bath’s home of rugby at the Rec on Grand Parade, so it stands to reason we should be the ‘go to’ venue for rugby fans this Six Nations,” says Frampton’s director Sam Westlake, director – and he’s not wrong.
If you love beer, you’ll love this fact: Framptons is only the eighth bar in the whole of the UK to have tank beer installed, with two 500 litre tanks suspended above the bar containing one tonne of brewery-fresh premium lager. There’s an extensive wine list to pair with the locally-sourced modern menu, plenty of cocktails to indulge in, a wide gin selection and of lots of Prosecco and English sparkling wine to quaff too. What’s not to like? Well there’s certainly nothing not to like about that all-important food.
The Frampton’s menu flaunts a range of artisan, healthy and seasonal local food (read our most recent review here) such as sourdough open sandwiches with roasted vegetables and halloumi or smoked salmon and poached egg to keep the munchies at bay, while steaks and burgers go large and fans watching later matches can graze on sharing platters of fish or charcuterie, local venison with garlic mash, confit of duck, real pie or one of the ever-changing Chef’s Specials. And when the final whistle blows, the Framptons team have lined up a selection of local bands and musicians to play after the key matches finish.
Everyone’s a winner at Framptons.
